The best sustainable, postpartum & plus-size swimwear + sexy bathing suits, like cheeky 1-piece suits. Shop it all in the 2020 Swim Guide by The Mom Edit.
The Mom Edit's 2020 Swim Guide is here!! Per usual, we've spent weeks going through pages and pages of online inventory, reading reviews, trying things on, and going back through helpful reader comments from previous years. The result is this lineup of swimsuits. We know this summer is likely going to look very different from last year, but we...
J.Crew swimwear is well-made & flattering — we are here for it. We tried 7 bathing suits & bikinis — sexy, cheeky, solid & patterned. Check out our review.
J.Crew suits have been on rotation for me since high school. They've just always offered the best colors around, even back in the day when colors were weird and not as awesome as they are now. Haha...#the90s. I used to peruse their catalogs partly just for the amazing color names. But besides some fab shades, their swimsuits have always...
Gorg scalloped edges & a girl-next-door vibe...Marysia swimwear has it... + a hefty price tag. We're giving it the #momlife test. 5 points from our review.
I've had my eye on Marysia swimwear for years now. I had yet to pull the trigger because, quite frankly, they're expensive. But oh-so-pretty, the kind of pieces that make me gasp a little, even though they're not necessarily revealing. Instead, they're a subtle sort of girl-next-door, sexy-by-accident kind of swimwear. And that signature scalloped edge has launched a...
The 2019 summer fashion trend that's timely & classic? Leopard print swimsuit. We heart this sustainable swimwear brand & found more bathing suits we love.
The swimwear trend I'm most excited about? Leopard. Not only does the leopard print trend show few signs of slowing down...but it's evolving into a classic. Think stripes, gingham....and leopard. In swimwear, it's especially genius. Leopard — when paired with undone hair, flip-flops and sunscreen — is playful and fun, rather than serious femme fatale. It's wildly glamorous, sure,...

BECCA Swimsuit Review

Crochet one-pieces, string bikinis & lingerie-inspired bathing suits — BECCA swimwear gets insanely rave reviews. This huge try-on sesh proves why.
A few readers recently requested a review of BECCA swimwear, which has been a staple in our yearly swim guide (this year's just launched!!). I realized that my personal experience with Becca was pretty limited — it's inclusion has always been based on readers' rave reviews (and Scotti's — some of her fav one-pieces have been by BECCA), so...
It's. Almost. Swim. Suit. Season...Oy, Mamas! We're trying ALL the bathing suits — from cute one pieces to high-rise bikinis. Join our 1st swimwear sesh!
Since nothing says end of winter like a 40-something blogger putting half-naked photos of herself on the internet (Yay! Every year!)...let's do this. (Even better? This is prob the first of many swim dressing room selfies this year. 'Tis the season.) And YES: it does feel even earlier than usual this year. I blame the groundhog, because the Googles don't...
For self-love & body positivity, we're baring it all — well, close. Swimsuits that make us feel good, (plus being postpartum & nursing-friendly) we got 'em.
If your sister-in-law asked you to get into a swimsuit to pose for pictures that would be posted on the internet, what would you say? No? Yeah, these beautiful ladies said no to me too. And as much as I like to think of myself as being pretty persuasive, that's not why they ended up agreeing to do this...
After we posted our picks for supportive swimwear for larger busts lots of you were asking how these suits fit in real life. So I headed off to the dressing room, even though this might be the least comfortable post I've done to date. However reading Kim's amazing, inspiring story changed my perspective. In 50 years I don't want to look back and regret not posting...
School is (finally) out in Philadelphia, and we're about to head for the shore.  There's nothing I like better than long, slow summer days at the beach.  Biking to the ice cream shop, playing catch, collecting rocks and shells, and falling asleep at night with the sound of the surf fresh in our ears. My boys love it too.  They can...
My friend Marty recently reached out.  She and I were in a breastfeeding support group together after Raines was born.  It was a fun group; after each session, a bunch of us would usually go out for beer.  Our kiddos - well-nursed for prob the only time that week - would usually sleep for a good two hours. Sometimes?  Three.  That,...
